A worried reader, Cletus, has been married to a silver-spoon wife for two years and life is becoming frustrating for him as his wife, Anita, has turned out to be lazy and dirty, not willing to do anything around the house.

She has never cooked for him nor swept the house in the two years they have been married, spending her life on the social media instead of running her home.

Cletus is becoming fed up, confused and choked up with his marriage. What should he do?

Read his letter here:

"My name is Cletus and I have been married for two years but during that time, I have not known what it means to eat food cooked by one's wife.

My wife, Anita, comes from a very rich home, the kind of home where housemaids do all the chores but I thought as a woman, she would have learned the art of keeping a home but she is so lazy that she can't even wash my boxers, not to talk of cleaning the house.

I earn a good salary and we had decided that she should not work but maintain the home front but that has not been the issue.

My food are either prepared by the maid or bought from eateries. At one point, I forbade the maid from coming into our bedroom but a week later, I had to practically beg the girl to come in and clean the place which was looking and smelling like a pig's sty.

All my wife does is going out with friends, being on social media and chatting with friends. Even her underwear are washed by the maid.

I have talked to her severally but she has refused to change and this situation is putting a strain in our marriage. Even having sex with her is disgusting because of her dirty nature. I

 am frustrated and recently, I have been thinking of getting a girlfriend because I am fed up with my wife.

What should I do?
